Framework Radio

framework began broadcasting in june, 2002 on the newly reformed resonance 104.4fm in london. the show now airs on 5 radio stations around the world, with more to follow soon, and streams and podcasts here on it’s own website. framework is consecrated to field recording and it’s use in composition, and began broadcasting at a time when a new community of sound artists with a special interest in found sound was developing, a community spread across the world that, thanks to the internet, was no longer limited to a specific geography. framework sees itself as an outlet for this ever-growing and developing community, a folk-tool in a new folk movement, a community driven exchange point for creators and listeners alike. framework‘s goal is to present not only the extremely diverse sound environments of our world, but also the extremely diverse work that is being produced by the artists who choose to use these environments as their sonic sources. we hope to ask this question: is ‘field recording’ a style, or a genre, or is it in fact as uncontrollable and undefinable an instrument or tool as any, that may be interpreted, manipulated, and appropriated by anyone with a microphone and an idea? these works are its definition, and not vice versa.

framework broadcasts two distinct alternating formats, a regular edition, constructed and mixed by its presenter from contributions submitted by listeners and members of the field recording community, and framework:afield, a guest-curated series produced by artists from all corners of the globe and based on their own themes, concepts or recordings. we see radio and the ability to broadcast as an important tool for any self-sustaining community, a way for it to communicate with its own members and with the world at large, a simultaneous staking of territory and invitation in. to quote the text that opens every edition of framework, open your ears and listen!
